the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
Michigan & Virginia Tech will play a home-and-home series during the 2020 & 2021 seasons; 2020 (Michigan Stadium), 2021 (Lane Stadium).— Michigan Football (@umichfootball) May 9, 2013
EDIT: now on the front page. Mods, feel free to delete.
CBS has a summary article here:
The original site with the odds is here:
Part of this is scheduling, as MSU gets Michigan at home and doesn't have to play Ohio State, Wisconsin, or Penn State from the Leaders division. Michigan obviously travels to Penn State and has to play Ohio State at home, so presumably the only good team in the conference Michigan will miss next year will be Wisconsin. Add that to the fact that tough road games seem like a guaranteed loss for Michigan over Hoke's first two years and you could see the Wolverines racking up enough losses to send Sparty back to the championship game.
I'm a little bit surprised they have Northwestern so low. They get MSU and Michigan at home, although I guess when you combine that with road games against Nebraska and Wisconsin and a home game against tOSU they don't get off so easy.
In any case, this is another exhibit in the horribleness of the current division configuration where MSU's cross-division rival is Indiana while Michigan's is Ohio State. It will be nice when no such arrangements exist any more.
A good finish in an otherwise no-so-typical Michigan season...
I had been getting a lot of messages to make another TEAM134 video so I made a trailer to get you pumped up for the season.. I cant embedd tried the old embedd and switched to plain text and did not work.. Here is the link
I haven't made a video since January, when ZFR flipped me the bird and had YouTube block 2/3 of my account. Apparently, compilation videos are fair game as all of them are still up. With that said, I'd like to make one. Ace's Keith Jackson thread made me nostalgic and since he broadcasted more Michigan games than any other school for nearly 3 decades, I thought I would make a vid dedicated to his most memorable quotes during Michigan football games.
To help me out here, I want you all to list your favorite Keith Jackson quotes. Whether they are pregame speak, calls of plays or random funny quotes like the time he said, "Clarence Williams grandmother could have scored that one," when we played Notre Dame in 97. Stuff like that.
And since I'm anti-misery, painful moments are not allowed.
So, list away if you can and I'll go find them.
